I know you are confused and scared, with the correct help and medication things can be "controlled". Now just a little more information to back up the theory that not all patients have the same symptoms i.e. you mention not having miscarriages.
Does it mean I will always miscarry?
No, fifteen per cent of women with three or more consecutive miscarriages have positive antiphospholipid syndrome tests. There are patients with antiphospholipid syndrome who have successful
pregnancies without treatment, though there is a higher risk of complications towards the end of pregnancy, including pre-eclampsia, intrauterine growth retardation (slowing down of the baby's growth in the uterus), and premature delivery.
What are the aCL and LA Tests?
These are the two blood tests that are used to diagnose Hughes Syndrome.
‘aCL’ stands for anticardiolipin
‘LA’ stands for Lupus anticoagulant (an extremely confusing name - and not a test for Lupus)
Do all Hughes patients have the same symptoms?
No. The diversity of symptoms is wide and can include headaches, flashing lights, giddiness, unsteady gait, cold circulation, and so on - or, just to make life more difficult - sometimes none of the above.
The hope is that with increasing recognition of Hughes Syndrome by physicians and patients worldwide, more widespread blood testing for Anti-phospholipid antibodies [aCL and LA] will bring many more people to the effective treatment.
Hop this helps some more.
